Tips

Thanksgiving

Make your Thanksgiving Dinner preparations easy and stress free. Simplify by planning ahead, and focusing on the details. Prepare in advance what you can store. Ask family and friends to bring a favorite dish, and make a list so you don't receive several of the same item. Ask the children to set the table and to help with decorations. Use your microwave oven to save the burners for the essentials.
